Arranged! is a board game that forces participants to confront the struggles of an Arranged Marriage
The culture of arranged marriages is still very prevalent in South-Asian societies. Many girls are forced or emotionally blackmailed into marrying someone their family chooses for them.
Their husband is usually chosen on the basis of his wealth and social status, or sometimes, even as a business deal. The woman’s role in these types of marriages is just as superficial. They have to present themselves as being the perfect bride at all times, which leads to using things such as skin whitening creams and diet pills. Most of these women cannot fight against the culture because they aren’t educated enough to be able to provide for themselves.
“Arranged!” masks the darkness of this topic, and provides a platform for people to be able to discuss these issues in a very lighthearted setting.
